O Kadhal Kanmani (Mani Ratnam)




Has anyone seen the movie 'O Kadhal Kanmani'? It's a Tamil movie by Mani Ratnam. I have heard a great reviews of the movie. I think it was released somewhere in GTA, but not the rest of Canada. Never have I ever read so many (good) reviews that too crop up almost every day even after a few weeks of its release, thus the interest. Though, I am interested to watch it, I would have to wait a bit longer for a good/original print to enjoy it.

How's it?

OK Kanmani has Malayalam superstar Mamooty's son as the hero. Like his father he too will be a very good ariste, unlike many other star off-springs. Dulqur has has done very well in a Malayalam movie which I happened to watch.

Better always to be cautious, not believe in media build up and reviews and not have expectations. When it is flop, we really get irritated. After Roja, that was around 1992, Mani Ratnam has hardly given any success like say Shankar. We are tempted to think Mani worries about a film only until he receives his fee.

We really feel sorry for the producers who bet on thinkers/intellectual film makers and artistes. In one recent movie, which attracted media attention for all the wrong reasons, when the hero crashes in to a moving car breaking the window glass, the story crashed out through the other window. Until then (30 minutes) the story line was very interesting. The action hero goes on ranting what he is. It would have better if he did only the action and left it for the viewers to decide about the character. Unfortunately, with all the star artistes, they have only sycophants hanging around them only to make a few money, but not give any good advice when the film goes wrong.

Some of the recent tamil movies do not have any notable star cast/expenditure w.r.to actors, directors or music composers but have come out as pleasant surprises for the viewers. One was Jigirdhanda based on rowdyism and violence in the city of Madurai in TN.

Another one in my list is: Uttama Villain. Looks different.

Any other Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Marathi, Gujarati, or Regional quality movies that you guys can recommend? Not the over the top action ones, please.

I recently watched Dum Laga Ke Haisha, I liked it. Ayushmann Khurrana acted really well plus the heroine. In fact, I had to google to figure out it was Ayushmann Khurrana. A good watch.

NH 10 - is watchable.
Badlapur - Could have been better
Rahasya - skip it

If you like Malayalam movies, Drishyam is a good movie - its a 2 year old thriller movie. Its Tamil remake is coming soon with Kamal Hasan in the lead. I will be going to the hall to watch that one.

Kamal Hasan's Anbe Sivam, to me was his best, especially the dialogues between Kamal and Madhavan.

Feb,
Donot watch Anbe Sivam. You will not like it as you will not be able to understand the conversation.

Some of the best films that I have seen (in tamil) are :

1. Mahanathi (Kamal Hassan)
2. May mathan

All old ones (prior to 2000) but gold ones

Malayalam and Tamil industries have better off-beat, non-commercial movies.

Thanks guys.

EF, that's true. This is what I observed as well by reading various Movies' reviews of Regional cinema, especially Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam. I am now just looking to broaden my perspective and choices by watching anything that's not purely Hindi, which has now becoming too repetitive and utter crap'ish.

I don't see any hope for Bollywood, except the movies by Vishal Bhardwaj and Anurag Kashyap that I continue to watch with intense interest.

Can we update this thread with the interesting and offbeat movies, regardless of the genre, language, and region?

Thanks TK. As I don't understand anything other than Punjabi, Hindi, and English, I plan to watch with subtitles. I'd still keep it in my list.
